This was a much needed and greatly anticipated weekend away. Our party of 10, had kids of all ages and everyone had a great time. Our accomodation was apparently upgraded to silver and i was very happy with it. it looked and smelt clean, everything worked and was comfortable. we were on the third floor which is a bit of...

Having never been to Butlins, not even as a child I had no idea what to expect but booked a reunion 80's weekend with some old friends anyway. Had been told some horror stories, was told it was seedy, tacky and could be rough. Nothing could have further from the truth. We had booked a Gold Apartment with Balcony which... More

worst break ever, we were upgraded to a silver 3 bed bungalow from a 2 bed silver apartment, walk into accommodation to a smell of damp, dirty carpets and a fridge which tilted so badly the welcome pack was used to level it out. The beds were like sleeping on wooden boards, and we had 6 families in the next... More

Decided to have a three day break at Butlins after an 11 year break. It was fantastic entertainment was fab in both centre stage and Reds and their was always something to do or somewhere to go. We stayed in a silver bungalow near the skyline and it was everything we needed. One little criticism was that there was never... More

Basics first! We stayed on a weekend break, in a gold apartment with patio, and had the premium meal package, there were 3 of us staying DH, DD (3) and myself. We upgraded to a B line pass, and had the wifi package for the break. I can be very picky when it comes to accommodation, and I was quietly... More

Not really what you expect when starting your holiday.The next day we complained to the accommodation... More

Great place to visit with young children for a short and very cheap break. The accommodation let it down though. We had booked a silver apartment/chalet for our 5 day stay. On arrival the apartment smelt musty. The carpets didn't look clean and they certainly hadn't been hovered. The laminate floor in the kitchen area was sticky. Our feet were... More

My son and I loved our trip to butlins it was perfect family fun just a shame about the lack of baby changing facilities and the tiny lift you have to queue in to get to centre stage and when you do get in it stinks of sick, it hasn't put me off but the place needs some tweeks and... More
